The Gift of Education, Issue #005 - Reading List
July 12, 2013

Often, we hothouse our kids for standardized exams: from PSLE to 'O' levels, 'A' levels, and SAT, then TOEFL, GRE and GMAT. Have we thought about university writing and reading skills, and then reading at work?

Singaporean students struggle at standardized test because our reading levels are not good enough, while our Math scores are perfect. If you want to differ, then have your kids start reading good books and enjoy them.

I have listed books for the very young to end of primary school. Have a look and borrow from the library or buy and keep some.
